Court of Public Opinion

How do some people end up on the wrong side of famous?  Here in New Jersey, the Tanning Mom, Patricia Krentsil, seems to be the latest Person the World Loves to Hate.

Some celebrities have done abhorrent things; even though we hated them “with cause,” it seems we’ll never allow them to redeem themselves.

  • Nadya Suleman
  • Lindsay Lohan
  • Michael Richards
  • Mel Gibson
  • Isaiah Washington

How do people get instantly and eternally on the public’s bad side?  Has any “fallen star” ever returned to the “good side?”

Some stars have found their way back into our good graces:

  • Robert Downey, Jr.
  • Christian Bale
  • Russell Crowe
  • Tracey Morgan

Even Chris Brown, who definitely has detractors (hello, Miranda Lambert), seems to have found some measure of forgiveness (i.e., Grammy win).

Looking at this list, it seems all of them have (or had) issues and could use a little compassion.  Maybe a chance to get back into the human race again.
